Did You See This? Oladipo's missed alley-oop

Here’s a first: Writing a post about a missed dunk. Never thought the day would come when such a thing would be worth highlighting, but no one could have guessed Victor Oladipo would come so close to completing an absolutely silly alley-oop. Watch the near highlight-reel dunk and a replay of it in this post. Or, hey, just check out the image of it on the video player here.

Honestly, look how far he reached just to catch the ball. And, somehow, Oladipo sounded frustrated in his postgame presser that he didn’t finish the play, saying: “I don’t know how I missed it, man. I was so close.”

No worries, though, because No. 3 Indiana still took down No. 1 Michigan.
